and. are you ready colonel? john: today's some people make fun of western's but they often told the true story of the grit then made america possible. the pioneers left safe places to and travel enormous distances onlto tough it out in wilderness. the term called and dealing and used for nothing and the ranches and farms, of breaking side and plowing and suffering through cold winters grit is what it took to create civilization and requires delaying gratification wanting something bigger than yourself and in the case of america's pioneers, a start date and abusing children and wives and husbands to build communities.

as john wayne character put it 're bilng an asian. we have got to suffer. wasever placed without hardship. that is life and grit is the stuff of life and greenness is achieved only after repeated failure. van gogh was unable to sell paintings he only sold one during his lifete and he painted 900. cartoonist charles schulz had every cartoon he submitted rejected and the nets became one of the most successful cartoons of all time and thomas edison teachers told his mom he was too stid to learn and was fired from his first two jobs for being nonproductive but he had the grit to try and try again and got 1,000 u.s. patents including the elecic railway and of course, the labeled that followed 1,000 unsuccessful attempts and a reporter asked him howoes it feel

to fail 1,000 times? he said i didn't. the late fall was an invention with 1,000 steps. that is grit it is great we live in a wealthy country with the welfare state so big we worry about for people getting fat but what makes most people happy is not comfort but earned success the struggle for the opposi of bernd success is learned helplessness and experiment when good things occurred that were not burned like nichols coming onslaught machines it did not increase people's well-being but it produced helplessness and people gave up and became passive. that psivity is a threat to our future. everybody goes through pain and loss a struggle to overcome the about to happiness and prosperity and at is our show.
